With race season upon us, it’s time to kick it into high gear! Enter: the weekly sweat report. Each week I’ll give you the rundown on the daily sweats, what worked, what didn’t…you get the point. Now let’s get started.
Monday-rest! After the One City Marathon Relay I needed a rest day. I’m still slightly fearful of re-injuring my IT band so I didn’t want to take any chances.
Swim. I did a total of 800 meters alternating between freestyle stroke and kicking with the kickboard. I’m not a strong swimmer and I tend to just use my arms while I’m swimming so forcing myself to kick is something I’m working on.
Plyometrics #1 of the week.
Wednesday-stretching-I felt so blah after a day of wearing a lead apron (at work) and then working late to catch up on patient phone calls.
Thursday-rest. Need to get out of this late week rest day crap–I do think it is due to long days at work coupled with a race on the weekend over the past two weeks, but there should really be no excuse.
Friday-rest-race on Saturday.
Plyometrics #2 of the week
Yoga-much needed stretching after Saturday’s race!
Goal for this week: 1. hit all of my workouts on my schedule. Now that my spring running races are over and I don’t have another one until October, it’s time to put full focus on triathlon season and 2. eat more veggies. I’ve been eating like complete crap lately and need to clean up my diet a bit.
How were your workouts last week?
